I will talk for myself on this, but, if it happen once i'm rude or just talking with you on /around without using ( )* that's Mithian who talk to Gidget, and not the player talking to the other player.
* ( ) are used to mark the fact that's the player who talk, totally our of RP.Tho, only on around chan since it's supposed to be the only RP chan.
Who says "Around" is the only RP channel, and () indicates OOC? Est-ce un truc d'Aniro? I started a few months after Merge, and usually only at times when most Europeans are offline (I'm 9 hours behind Paris), so I have practically no idea. What I do know is that I have very rarely seen () denoting OOC in the six years I have been here, and have seen RP in roughly equal amounts in all channels. If I can make it this long without that knowledge, it's easy to imagine that there are a fair number of players who wouldn't necessarily know what you just taught me, and you might not have a chance to explain until after you had already offended them to the point where then may not listen to anything you have to say.
And that brings us back around to folks having different ideas on many things, like how to RP, whether or not agro-dragging or publicly bad-mouthing others is acceptable, whether Rangers can do anything that may harm a homin, and all sorts of other things that are an endless source of friction between players. Players are diverse enough that it's unwise to assume that those halfway around the world from you will have nearly the same views you do on such things. We have enough folks that are intentionally awful that we really don't need any additional conflict caused by simple culture clash!
